Key stroke problems when using E-Mail (Only)

While typing an e-mail keys skip, to include the using the space bar, only happens in e-mail.
For example I might type Ford but it comes out "ord"! or I might type, Hope to see you soon. and it comes out "opet se yusoon".
It's almost like the keys are very pressure sensitive but only when I use e-mail?
Sure hope you have a quick and easy fix.
Thanks for any help you can provide.

You probably use an online mail system. If you were to use Outlook or Outlook Express this would not occur, because they are not online. This basically means, when you type a character to an online system, it must travel to the remote server, then be echoed back to you. The time can vary between keystrokes widely, depending on the number of hops, latency and other factors. Offline email does everything on your PC then transmits a complete email message at one time when you send it. The speed of your internet connection can influence this greatly. Most DSL connections are fast enough that this should not happen. If you are using a telephone modem, it will happen regularly.

The spacebar on my Sony laptop is not leaving spaces be tween words when e-mailing.Hw can I fix his as i's verynnoying


The space-bar can be lifted off using a small screw driver , this will reveal whats underneath , as it clips onto a wire structure that acts like a spring as well as pushing on the electronic button to send the signal , this can be faulty due to dirt getting lodged under the space-bar or a misalignment problem with the mechanism its self and can usually be fixed once the plastic space-bar is removed , but take note when removing the plastic space-bar key in regards to how it is attached and the position of the wire spring system so that after fixing replacement is easy .

O want to install a new key . What are the steps ,please


A key falling off of a keyboard might be an annoyance, but it is not a reason to buy a new keyboard. Regardless of which key falls off, it can be replaced fairly easily. Although the method of replacing typical letter keys is a little different than replacing the space bar, replacing either of these types of keys can be done in a few minutes.

Carefully pry the key from the keyboard next to the key that has fallen off. This key can easily be pried by sliding a flat-head screwdriver underneath it and popping the key out. Be careful to make sure the key retainer underneath the key stays in place, especially if the key retainer has also fallen off the key you are attempting to fix. Look closely at the key retainer underneath the key that was just removed. Notice there is a notch in each corner of the key designed to hold the key in place. Place the key retainer back into place if it has fallen off the key you are trying to fix. Make sure it is positioned exactly as the key retainer next to it is. Put the key on top of the key retainer. Use your index finger to firmly push straight down on the key to lock the key back into place. Do the same to the key that was taken off to view the other key retainer. b> Replacing the Space Bar b> Turn the space bar upside down and use a flat-head screwdriver to separate the retainer from the back of the space bar key. Place the retainer into its place on the keyboard. The retainer will hook into small hooks on the left and right sides. The small metal bar from the retainer should line the bottom of the area where the space bar will be placed. Put the space bar back into the place where it belongs. Spread the ring finger, middle finger and index finger across the space bar, and push firmly until the key snaps into place. Put the space bar key back in place and gently press on it with fingers until it snaps back in place.

You can only clean your keyboard with a toothbrush without rmoving it,

Try to remove the space bar key and clean under it.

Try to hard press the space bar for about 5 times, it can release the pusher under the key.

When I boot my computer the message "unsupported format" shows on the screen, then it goes blank. This started happening after I was reinstalling Windows XP and the process got interupted.


Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows Installation CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work. You can order a boot up floppy disk from here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310994 with this file, if you know how, you can use “ImageBurn” to burn the file into an ISO file which can be burned to a disk. Now make sure your computer boots to the cd rom first. If you know how to do this skip on down, if you don’t, while the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu

Sir, while typing in my mail with my sony vai vgn cr 363 some keys are skipping. solution for this problem


Its either you have dirt in your key pad that is causing some keys to skip. It's not always an easy task cleaning some keypads, but one thing you could do, is use a blower to blow any dirt that could be sitting in between keys.
If that doesnt work, I would suggest considering getting a replacement. Its worth all the hussle. Or idealy you could get an external USB keypad that you could plug to you laptop
